I’m not sure the exact moment I realized my daughter was a bada$$. All I know is that she is and she continually proves it. Her latest example of badassary is her desire to have a dinosaur Christmas tree.

When your kid wants a dinosaur Christmas tree, you give them a dinosaur Christmas tree.

So, I ordered some plastic toy dinosaurs from Amazon.

And some fun, metallic acrylic paint from the reformed felon herself, Martha Stewart.

After I painted the dinosaurs (some took 3 coats) I added eyehooks and used regular ornament hooks to hang them on the tree.

I should probably warn you at this point, I got a new DSLR for my birthday. Brace yourself for photo overload…

And just like that, I solidified my place as coolest mom in town in the eyes of my toddler…for now. ;] Still not quite as cool as her dad, but let’s be honest, that’s just an unrealistic goal.
